Molasses Cookies

So rainy here today, so time to bake. Here’s a great one to bring the holidays into the house. These cookies are addictive and make the house smell wonderful.


12 Tbsp unsalted Butter (3/4 cup)
1 1/4 cup of white Sugar
1/4 cup Molasses
1 large Egg
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 cups AP Flour
1/2 tsp ground Cloves
1/2 tsp ground Ginger
1/4 tsp ground Nutmeg
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt
Powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat the oven to 375, and take out two non stick cookie sheets. You can also use greased parchment if you do not have non stick cookie sheets.

Melt butter and pour into mixer and let cool slightly, add 1 cup sugar, molasses, egg and beat well.

Sift together dry ingredients and add into butter mixture and blend well.

Cover bowl and put in fridge for 15 minutes

Put remaining 1/4 cup of sugar on plate. Scoop out dough by tablespoon and roll into 1 inch ball and roll in sugar and place on sheet, 2 inches apart and bake for 8 minutes for chewy and 10 minutes for crispy.

Dust with powdered sugar, while they are still hot.
